Kind words

Historically, I find working with designers difficult. I love leading projects and allowing my voice to come through, and oftentimes, designers dislike that attribute in a client. Grace and Chris have not only supported my voice, but encouraged it. They listen to my feedback and tailor their designs toward suggestions I have, while respectfully contributing their voices as well.

Chris McCray and Grace Hall of McCray & Co. are the masterful design minds behind some of Austin’s  most memorable spaces: the magical and whimsical French eatery Lenoir; the funky, cool Stiles Switch BBQ; and the Texas-meets-Japanese (and always buzzing) Kemuri Tatsu-Ya...


Chris not only quickly gets what we’re going for; he has collaborated with us and helped to advance our ideas in new and impressive ways. His design expertise is top-notch.
